what a **** move by Radulov, but anything from Rudie doesn't surprise me at this point

Really showed his increased maturity on that shift...passed up a wide-open net on a 2 on 1 opportunity to try to make a pretty play, then in his anger boards a Czech player straight into the legs of his unsuspecting teammate who is helped off the ice not putting any weight on his leg...

Best part about it...I believe Zinovev (sp?) is Radulov's linemate in Russia for Ufa...

Arnott had to love watching the goal celebration too when Radulov leaped into Kozlov in open ice...:shakehead

I really don't, but we've got to get something for him, period ... whether that be a draft pick or something else

Can he put the puck in the net with regularity? If yes, then I want him back.

I think it was you that posted something to the effect that kids do plenty of stupid things in their lives. He made a bad decision. We all have done something stupid in our lives yet we are ready to throw a pure sniper out of town and to another team when that is exactly the thing we need here and at a decent salary. Get him back on the team, if it's not working because of hard feelings or he's not playing to the potential we need him to, then deal him.

Agreed, but you would think concussing a teammate with a celebration would be enough for him to learn. HEY! Learn to control yourself.

He's got ADHD...lol.

Webersmashpuck 02-21-2010 07:22 PM

Suter is playing nasty today wow, I love it. His one handed knock down of Toews was great, and Weber had a monsterous check on Kesler.

golfmade 02-21-2010 07:27 PM

Suter and Weber big hits, and Weber with a booming shot near the end there, daaaaaammmmn.

Suter is +2 with an assist and Weber a -1 rating through twenty minutes...

101st_fan 02-21-2010 07:34 PM

Rads left of his own volition .... and his stupidity continues today with a dumb penalty and injuring a teammate in one move (took him two in the NHL. improvement?)

USA / Can .... whoa!!!!!!! Sadly, we face Rafalski three times after the break. Hopefully he cools down after the Olympics.

golfmade 02-21-2010 08:03 PM

Woot, Drury!

101st_fan 02-21-2010 08:08 PM

we had a 5-on-5 shootout going there for a while.

Enoch 02-21-2010 08:14 PM

Suter and Rafalaski are out there every other shift. Erik Johnson is the only other US d-man who is playing up-to snuff for this game.

Weber is a beast.....

Our two Predator blue-liners look like two of the top 10 defensemen in this league right now....and that is not a stretch.....

golfmade 02-21-2010 08:54 PM

WOOOOOOOOOOT empty net goal should do it, yeah baby!!! :yo::yo:

TMI 02-21-2010 09:17 PM

Greatest game I've ever witnessed... (I was born five years after Lake Placid)

Webersmashpuck 02-21-2010 09:34 PM

I agree about being the best game Ive ever seen. I hope these two teams meet in the gold medal game.

Seth Lake 02-21-2010 09:41 PM

Kesler's dive for the empty-netter is IMO the best diving play in hockey since Orr went for a flight after scoring the Cup clinching goal for Boston over the Blues in the 70's...

Fantastic game!!! :yo:

PredsV82 02-21-2010 09:58 PM

ok the standings right now are http://www.nbcolympics.com/hockey/st...r=m/index.html


so if sweden beats finland by less than 5 goals or even takes the game to OT, USA will be the #1 seed, SWE #2, RUS #3, FIN #4, CZE #5, CAN #6, SVK #7, SWE #8, BLR #9, NOR #10, GER #11, and LAT #12.


making the qualifiers:

CZE vs LAT winner to face FIN

CAN vs GER winner to face RUS(wow...what a quarterfinal!)

SVK vs NOR winner to face SWE

SUI vs BLR winner to face USA.


if I am correct, and I think I am, then either Russia or Canada is guaranteed to miss the medals... and the USA wouldnt have to face SWE, RUS or CAN until the finals at the earliest.

101st_fan 02-21-2010 10:12 PM

SUI not SWE playing BLR ......

Suter had a fantastic game. Huge win for USA.. hopefully they don't get cocky

You know this for a fact? I have a hard time thinking a 20 year old in a country with some "questionable practices" did all this on his own. I have no proof of this but you have no proof of what happened behind closed doors either. Eventually the truth might come out on what really happened but when Poile made a comment that said something to the effect of, I talked to Rads, he'd like to come back but can't right now, something tells me this goes deeper than a 20 year old making a dumb mistake.

I just think it's funny that we're ready to throw him under the bus without knowing all the facts except the ones presented to us. If all the facts are out there, I'd say let's lynch him if he comes back but I think there's more to this story than any of us know about. I also think it's funny that we'll crucify a kid for a bad decision yet others have been forgiven for their transgressions.
